2011 Writing Resolutions – A Bit Late As Usual

January 18, 2011

Another year and another attempt to break some bad writing habits and create some positive ones. We’ll see.

What is the home row?

The home row is the center row of keys on the keyboard "A,S,D,F,J,K,L,;" When students are taught how to become touch typists (typing without looking at the keys) they begin with their hands resting on the home row. The left hand rests on the "A,S,D,F" keys and the right hand on the "J,K,L,;" keys. From this position the other keys can be reached.
